Agree with all the points John. And to think it possibly could have all been avoided had Poindexter and Vick's lawyers reached some sort of bargain before it went to a federal level. I may be wrong, but i don't think the FEDS would have been involved had Poindexter executed the warrants properly. And the NFL wouldn't have become involved with their own investigation had Vick copped a plea with the State of Virginia, served 3 months and paid a huge fine.Goodell would have suspended him for 4-6 games and that would have been that.
Poindexter, for some reason "dragged his feet" and the investigation floundered. The Feds were interested spectators waiting for the State to uncover something they might be able to use down the line. When Poindexter ran his mouth and did nothing, the property was burglarized and the Feds were concerned evidence was being stolen. Thus they jumped in and Poindexter was history.
